In the middle of the book of virtue
You stand of highest value
Humility, you are a treasure so noble
For a heart so humble
In you I sign my name
So that my life won’t be maim
I cherish you oh humility
For from you I take dignity
But still you remain my struggle
In this world of jungle
I pass through you as to a narrow gate
To receive all that is given in faith
Humility you are my delight
You bring me friends like magnet
With you heaven is more than a target
For you give me the angelic coronet.
